Despite losing Yanic Wildschut to Norwich City, Wigan Athletic pulled off arguably the best deal of the month on the final day.

It was another dramatic end to deadline day, with plenty of Championship club's spending big money on players from all over the globe in the final hours of the window.

Often, it's the smaller teams that suffer on the final day, with many losing their big names players to huge deals that become almost impossible to say no to.

For Wigan Athletic, this looked to be the case. After a bid, reported by the BBC to be worth £7 million, the Lactics said goodbye to popular winger Yanic Wildschut, who departed for Norwich City.

The Dutchman, who has arguably been Wigan Athletic's best player this season, will certainly be missed, but could Wigan really say no to such a huge fee?

The wideman, who often struggles to hit the target and whose end product is generally inconsistent, is arguably not worth the huge money that's been spent on him, and looks to be an excellent bit of business from the Wigan chairman, David Sharpe.

Not only this, but Wigan also completed a number of their own incomings on deadline day. The Lactics signed Rangers goalkeeper Matt Gilks, Eastleigh striker Mikael Mandron, Hartlepool midfielder Josh Laurent and Manchester City's Jack Byrne for undisclosed fees, as well as bringing in Gabriel Obertan on a free transfer, Alex Bruce on loan and James Weir also on loan.

Though all good signings, the one that stood out the most however was the signing of Grimsby Town striker, Omar Bogle. After scoring 19 goals in the league this season, Bogle was one of the hot properties of the transfer window, and has proved to be a real coup for Wigan.

The fee, which was reported by Sky Sports as rising up to £1 million, makes the deal even more impressive. Considering the huge inflated fees for goalscorers these days, to sign such a young striker for so cheap, is a really excellent bit of business for Wigan Athletic.

So, will Omar Bogle do the business? Can he keep Warren Joyce's side in the league? Is this the best bit of business in the window? Let us know in the comments!
